Rest


Rest in your heartbeat,
where you have no enemies,
where no one is to blame,
where the journey has not begun,
and even prayers for peace
do not need to speak.
Disperse into what you are
before you breathe,
smoke of sage in desert air.
Burn away and remember,
your body is made of stars
that vanished eons ago.
Friend, rest here
in your own rhythm,
where motion is stillness.
This is the secret.
A nest inside an egg.
A mother's womb that carries
her own savior.
Be the seed of whatever
you are seeking.
Flower on a Winter night.
